  • Frank s Italian

    "Frank's is the best Italian in western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma, this includes Van Buren, Fort Smith, Alma, Fayetteville, Rogers, Springdale, Bentonville, Sallisaw, Roland, Muldrow, Spiro and Poteau. I honestly wish he had another location, if not 2 or 3 more to spread out. Franks tops Olive Garden any day, everyday and all day six days a week, I wish they were open on Mondays." Guest Comment
